Pre Professional Studies Hero

Pre-professional means that students would like to prepare for a specific career. It's a set of courses that each student should take if they plan on taking the exam and entering law or medical school after graduation. It is important to note that a pre-professional plan is not a major, it’s a path. Most students major in an area that will complement their career choice.
